Turned out to confirm the rumor that Microsoft would make a tablet own brand instead of a partnership with Barnes & Noble. The tablet has two versions, the Surface is to compete with the normal tablets, like the iPhone, the Surface Pro version will also be a tablet, but facing the ultrabooks because both versions come with a keyboard that works as a protective cover for the screen. Both versions have a 10.6-inch screen.

The store will also be different, you can choose between the 64Gb and 128GB. This version has an optional Pen.

Another great new feature to the Surface is the shield that will be a keyboard and a touchpad and operate the same way that the iPhone Smart Case, but will have a keyboard and a touchpad. With this "hood", we begin to see the possibility of tablets begin replacing computers.

There will be two kinds of cloaks, Touch Cover and Cover Type. Cover Type A is a keyboard with normal to be for Surface Pro, because it adds more than 5 mm thick.

A Touch Keyboard Cover is an "almost capacitive", which will add to the 3 mm thick tablet. it`s like the Smart Cases iPad had physical buttons. This case / keyboard will be available in white, black, red, blue and pink.
